Take a look at this fabulous cabinet sized Jullien in her vintage silk frock. This is a fabulous girl with her darling, classic Jullien face, and original blue paperweight eyes. How can you possibly say no to her? If you are fond of gorgeous French bebes, large or small, don't hesitate to make this sweetheart yours! Jullien bebes are a must-have for any French doll collection! I know that this darling little girl will be sold in a flash, so grab her up before she is GONE for good and you are left out in the cold dreaming of the one that got away.
We are offering her with the opportunity to put her on layaway for up to 6 months!
She has a wonderful poured bisque socket head with her original blue paperweight eyes, painted upper and lower lashes, multi stroke brows, a closed mouth, and pierced ears. She stands at 16.5” on her original fully jointed French wood and composition body, and she is crowned with a wonderful dark blond French human hair wig.
Her vintage frock is made of pale pink watermarked moire silk, with pink faux pearl buttons all the way down the front, and lace overlay, much of which is missing. The dress features an attached jacket, with wonderful hand-applied beadwork at the front and piping along the edges and at the back, with three tassels above two tiers of pleats at the back of the dress. Underneath, she wears her original antique white cotton underwear: a full slip and a pair of pantaloons with eyelet lace trim. On her feet, she wears antique white stockings and red-brown reproduction Jumeau shoes with rosettes at the toes. On her head, she wears a vintage pink corduroy chapeau with a straw band, and silk flowers, and in her ears she wears a pair of earrings with clear faceted and opaque round pale pink glass beads.
MARKS: JULLIEN / 5 [incised, back of head]
CONDITION: Generally excellent. Her bisque head is entirely free of hairlines, cracks, or restoration! She has some minor wig pulls, which are hidden by the wig, and a chip to the right earlobe, which is to be expected on dolls with pierced ears. The bisque is somewhat grainy, but features expert painting of features, crisp modeling of a sweet face with an alert, wondrous look, pleasant color and her original blue paperweight eyes. The original body has scrubbed hands, but otherwise retains its original shiny finish. Her costume is in great condition, with some missing lace on the front of the dress. Don’t let her innocent face become just a memory!!!
